Step 1

Enter the Future value (FV). The future value of the lump sum is entered. This is the amount received at the end of period n.

Step 2

Enter the discount rate (i). The discount rate is the rate used to discount the lump sum back from the end of period n, to the beginning of period 1 (today). The rate should be for a period, so for example, if the period is a year, then the rate should be the yearly rate.

Step 3

Enter the number of periods (n). The number of periods is entered. A period can be any term (month, year etc), but must be consistent with the discount rate provided (see step 2)

Step 4

The present value of a lump sum calculator works out the present value (PV). The answer is the value today (beginning of period 1) of a lump sum of money received at the end of period n, at a discount rate of i.
